If you've been avoiding gay-themed movies since September 11 because you've felt your time was better spent elsewhere, here's a chance to return to the theaters and have all the money you spend go to the relief effort in New York City and Washington, D.C. On Tuesday, September 25, the National Association of Theater Owners will present "Victims' Benefit Day at the Movies," when 100% of ticket and concession sales will be donated to the September 11 Fund of the United Way and to the American Red Cross. So if you haven't gotten around to seeing Hedwig and the Angry Inch, The Monkey's Mask, The Iron Ladies, All Over the Guy, The Deep End, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, The Closet, or any of the other movies out there for gay and lesbian audiences, here's an opportunity to be entertained and help others at the same time.
